Dear Carol, 

Momentum is growing across the country for our "Love Knows No Borders: A moral call for migrant justice" week of action. 

On Monday, Dec. 10 – Human Rights Day – more than 200 faith leaders will take part in a nonviolent direct action at the border in San Diego, California. Between then and Dec. 18, International Migrants Day, communities from Oakland, California to Denver, Colorado, to Montpelier, Vermont will host solidarity events to stand with the migrant caravans and all who seek refuge. And many more events are in the works.  

We hope you join us as we call on the U.S. to end the detention and deportation of immigrants, respect the human right to migrate, and end the militarization of the border.   

Here's how you can get involved in our week of action:

1. Visit our website to organize or attend an event in your community. 
Congregations, community groups, and others are planning vigils, marches, visits to legislators' offices and more. If you don't see an action near you, consider organizing an event in your area. Here's a toolkit to help you plan, and we'll also provide you with one-on-one support. 

2. Show your support for migrant justice.  
Download our "Love Knows No Borders" graphics to share on social media, and print posters to display in your congregation, community center, school, and more. Available in English and Spanish.

3. Learn more about what's happening at the U.S.-Mexico border – and what you can do about it.  
Watch this Facebook video to hear from AFSC staff at the border about what we've witnessed in our work to document human rights violations at the border and how you can get involved. 

In solidarity,

Lucy Duncan
Director of Friends Relations

Pedro Rios
Director, U.S.-Mexico Border Program, San Diego
